5K Update -- week 3

I've begun week three's training. But, let me go back to last week's training. Or, more specifically, the weekend before last week's training. I ate my way through the weekend. To the point, I ate a LOT of monkey bread. If you don't know what that is, it's balls of dough rolled up, then rolled in cinnamon sugar and put into a bundt pan. It's then baked. The monkey bread I had was then topped with a most delicious cream cheese frosting and some walnuts. Yeah, super duper healthy. FANTASTICALLY YUMMY!! So, when I did my first run of the week last week, it SUCKED! I thought I was going to die. First of all it was cold. Well, cold for Beaufort. I'm not sure that it was 35 degrees when I took off. Two shirts, pants, jacket, scarf, ear warmer, gloves, etc. Not only did I have a ton of clothes on weighing me down, but the monkey bread was waaaaay slowing me down. (I literally had a monkey on my back! Or at least around my middle and on my heiney!) Anyway, I did all three of my planned runs and by the end of the week I felt great.
So, today I started week three. It was a challenge, but I did it and I already am seeing cardiovascular changes. One thing I am learning is that the week usually starts out challenging, but by the last run of the week the run feels great.
Keep cheering for me. I'm off to run...
